DALLAS (AP) - The Mavericks have signed free agent shooting guard Monta (MAHN'-tay) Ellis, finishing off the final piece of their new starting lineup.
Terms of the deal announced Tuesday weren't disclosed. It is reportedly a three-year contract for between $25 and $30 million.
Ellis will start alongside point guard Jose Calderon, another free agent addition. The third new starter is center Samuel Dalembert. It's the second straight year the Mavericks have put three new starters around Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion.
The 27-year-old Ellis will start the season with a different team for the third straight year after spending his first six seasons with Golden State. The Warriors traded Ellis to Milwaukee in 2011-12, and he led the Bucks last season at 19.2 points per game, slightly below his career average.
